Zooplankton is among food source for fish larvae at initial stage. In larvae rearing of marine fish, two indispensable zooplanktons being used as live food include rotifer and copepod. Larvae of some fish species including grouper have specific biological characters, such as small mouthed size, which require small live food suitable for the larval mouth size. Some species of grouper reported to have small mouthed size at larval stage, are: 1. Cromileptes altivelis / Highfin grouper 2. Epinephelus fuscogutatus / Tiger grouper 3. Epinephelus malabaricus /Malabar grouper 4. Epinephelus polykhaedon / Flowey grouper 5. Epinephelus lanceolat / Giant grouper 6. Epinephelus coides / Eustarian grouper 7. Plectropamus leopardus / coral trout Due to their small mouth size at larval stage, they require small size of live food. But, such kind of live food is not yet established in the current larval rearing procedure
